Greenwich festival marks Refugee Week

Greenwich is marking Refugee Week with a festival that celebrates the contributions of refugees and revolves around the theme of healing.

The festival includes events in Woolwich by Protein dance company, as well as a documentary highlighting refugee stories and arts and crafts workshops.

Greenwich started the process 18 months ago to become a Borough of Sanctuary with the organisation City of Sanctuary.

Greenwich Council leader Anthony Okereke has said that “anyone who seeks to make Royal Greenwich their home is welcome here – no matter where you are from, in the world.”
